About Bev Mandaville

We have lived on Lake Ontario most of our lives and wanted to share that with our guests. We have owned and operated several vacation homes and an Inn for over 20 years. When the opportunity to purchase this beautiful home with the most amazing views we could not resist.

Well-Maintained Property with Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well-maintained and comfortable property, with great sunsets on Lake Ontario. The owners were very easy to work with. We enjoyed our vacation and would definitely stay here again if we returned to the area.

Waterfront lovely home, great views, close to Niagara Falls, Fort Niagara, Lockport

  • 5 of 5

Although we are only around 90 minutes east of this location, we wanted a Fall getaway on Lake Ontario. We arrived last Friday and left this morning. Despite the bad weather we had, especially at the beginning of our trip, we truly enjoyed The Lake House. Well appointed, tastefully decorated, and exceptionally clean, I highly recommend this rental. The added convenience of a freshly made bed and supplied towels puts it above most home rentals, as generally they require you to pack and bring your own. In addition, the entire home is newer "everything". We hope we have the opportunity to return, and enjoy better weather so that we could make use of the porch and deck, both overlooking the lake. You can see the lights of Toronto across the lake in the distance. You can also see cargo ships passing by on their way to the canal and the upper Great Lakes, and have a closer look with the provided binoculars. For those unfamiliar with the region, this home is a great value as an alternative to staying at hotels closer to/at the Falls, especially if you are planning longer than a few nights stay. Much nicer than anything you can expect for the same money in the "tourist-trap" area closer to Niagara Falls, and you can prepare some or all of your meals here. Short drive to the border, Fort Niagara, and many local wineries and eateries.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We so love to hear how you enjoyed your stay at the Lake House. Were those waves with the strong winds not amazing? On your next visit we hope to have sunny skies and calm waters. Sincerely, Bev

Absolutely Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property inside and out. Had a wonderful time at this location. Back patio right on the lake was so beautiful and relaxing. Easy drive to many points of interest. Needed nothing at the home. Very well stocked. Owners just a text away with quick response(locked myself out :()

Can't say enough good things. Wish we could have stayed longer.

A beautiful home with breathtaking lakeview

  • 5 of 5

The house turned out EXACTLY like the pictures, gorgeous, clean, lots of windows, natural lights. The kitchen is updated, well-stocked, big enough for family cooking. The master bedroom is like a dream. Landscaping in the front yard and back yard is very nice. The highlight of the house is the backyard patio with fantastic view of lake Ontario. There is also a nice deck to look out the water. Awesome!

We took a walk around the beautiful neighborhood, lots of flowers, trees. There is a winery right down the road with wine & chocolate pairings. Also there are quite a lot of wineries around within 5 or 10 minutes drive. Schulze vineyard is my favorite with awesome white wine.

Olcott beach & town is just 5 minute drive away.

Wished the wifi had worked but it was just a small thing.

We did not get a chance to swim in the water because the weather was not nice enough so the water was rough. But our family had an amazing time at this home. We love watching the sunset on the deck. We definitely will come back.

Fantastic View!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was very near perfect! It was well appointed, very clean and the view was spectacular. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. However, we didn't need their assistance at all, since everything was just so. The rental had tons of local information available, which was a great help to us since we had never been to the area before. During the day, my girlfriend and I would go exploring, we saw the falls, Erie Canal tour, visited nearby towns, and even hit the wine trail (note: there is one winery within walking distance to the rental!!). We would usually rush back to the rental to watch the sun set. How beautiful. What a view! We spent a great deal of our time on the porch, my girlfriend even got some watercolor painting in - she couldn't resist that view! Also, of note, is the fact that we didn't have to "clean" the rental at the end of our stay. In some of our past rentals, we had to strip beds and complete very specific tasks before leaving.

We would definitely recommend this rental to couples. It was a very peaceful retreat. The owners couldn't have been better!
